    Again, it works for those who practice it. Regular sex ed works (mostly) for those who practice it. Both should be taught. Abstinence should be the one that's encouraged.

    Yes, shallow. There is no critical thinking happening in the head that's saying that.

    And yes, some people do think that.

    i agree with both being taught. that means you agree that we SHOULD move away from abstinence only, correct?

    The under 18 crowd usually don't get married while they're under 18.

    The percentage of people who wait until marriage to have sex? Very low. That's why I'm an advocate for abstinence education along with regular sex ed. Abstinence should be encouraged.

    I feel like a broken record....

    Of course. I don't know any public schools that teach abstinence only, though.

    So what are horny teens supposed to do? Get real. They are biologically readu for sex.
    The problems stems from the past 100 years or so of keeping kids kids for a longer period of time.

    Because it's 100% effective in NOT getting pregnant or getting STDs. I thought that was obvious.
